                  Student Symposium and Workshops at
   HiPC-08: International Conference on High Performance Computing

                   Dec 17-20, 2008 Bangalore, India


HiPC is an international meeting on high performance computing. It serves as a forum to present current work by researchers from around the world as well as highlight activities in Asia in the high performance computing area. The meeting focuses on all aspects of high performance computing systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications.

  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  Parallel and Distributed Computing/Algorithms
  Languages and Programming Environments
  Load Balancing, Scheduling and Resource Management
  Fault-Tolerant Algorithms and Systems
  Scientific/Engineering/Commercial Applications and Workloads
  Cluster and Grid Computing
  Peer-to-peer Algorithms and Networks
  Heterogeneous Computing
  Context-Aware Computing
  Wireless and Mobile Computing
  Communication/Sensor Networks and Embedded Applications
  Emerging Computer Architectures
  Scalable Servers and Systems
  Power-Efficient and Reconfigurable Architectures
  Compiler Technologies for High-Performance Computing
  Operating Systems for Scalable High-Performance Computing
  Performance Evaluation and Analysis
  High-Performance Computing for Biology and Medicine  



 HiPC 2008 will feature the first student research symposium on High
 Performance Computing (HPC) aimed at stimulating and fostering
 student research, and providing an international forum to highlight
 student research accomplishments. The symposium will also expose
 students to the best practices in HPC in academia and industry. The
 one-day symposium will feature brief presentations by student
 authors on their research, followed by a poster exhibit. Short
 invited talks by leading HPC researchers/practitioners will be
 included in the program. The symposium reception will provide an
 opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and
 practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry. To be
 considered, students should submit a 5 page extended abstract of
 their research.

* August    15, 2008 – Student Symposium submissions open.

* September 15, 2008 – Student Symposium submissions due.

* Submission procedures will be available at the Student Symposium web
 site after August 15, 2008.
